Why Teaching Clients Is More Empowering Than Healing
As Therapist, Healers we have a deep want to help our clients in whatever way we can.
We would love to take away our client’s pain and suffering but this isn’t always possible or even the right or most effective type of therapy or treatment. Many clients are the source of their own pain over and over again and cannot see it. Especially if they are not really self-aware, can’t or refuse to face it, accept it or believe it. It doesn’t matter if the source of their challenges is mental, physical, emotional or even spiritual. We have to give back the responsibility to the client especially when the ego tends to get in the way, in whatever shape or form.
It doesn’t matter if the source of their well-being challenges is mental, physical, emotional or even spiritual. We have to give back the responsibility to the client especially if your ego gets in the way in whatever shape or form, if you are a wounded healer, a fixer, carer, nurturer…
That is why although healing specifically reiki was in many ways the first therapy that I seriously got my teeth into 24 years ago. I quickly started to realise more and more over the years that healing disciplines were just one part of the healing jigsaw, true deep healing came from more inner workings of our self, and to give clients or students the awareness or access to these skills would help them on the road to self-healing, empowerment, and enoughness.
Why give a poor man a fish when you can give him a fishing rod?
No matter what sort of healer or therapist you are, you can help teach and empower clients in each session by giving them back their power. The most powerful healing masters will guide and support the client or student to help them understand that they are their own healer, that their healer is not their god, their fixer, nor master but someone sharing the path with them along the way. You are simply a guide towards healthier choices and deeper understanding of what they need to change.
This is the reason I loved to teach and empower clients to take self-responsibility for over 15 years, in whatever shape or form that may come in. Lucky for me I was fortunate enough to train in many highly effective techniques that I could teach to even the most vulnerable clients, including serious addiction.
As a highly experienced meditation teacher and stress coach to all ages, I came to witness and understand how much simple highly effective meditation techniques. When applied moment to moment can have dramatic impacts in people’s happiness, health, well-being and general peace of mind.
I see how the education and teaching of various stress management and relaxation techniques can help one start to be at one with their own body. It is surprising how many people have no body awareness, they are so shut off from their physical body, they spend most of their time locked in the chaos of the disillusioned mental body. How remarkably better they feel after becoming more grounded, relaxed, peaceful by a spiritual master, no a highly effective relaxation teacher or therapist 🙂
